SIIM seminars range from general knowledge to technical understanding of the DICOM, HL7, and IHE standards, hands-on troubleshooting classes for PACS, clinical and IT training for PACS administrators, certification preparation for PARCA and CIIP training, regulatory workshops dealing with US FDA requirements for medical manufacturers and 510(k) filings and seminars on HIPAA compliance and cyber security for healthcare IT applications. We can also develop a specialized and dedicated training program that meets your specific requirements based on your products, environment or target audience.

Face-to-Face Courses Offered

1. Off-site Scheduled Training

Typical class
Our scheduled seminars are characterized by their fairly small sizes (max 15 attendees, but typically 7-10), having a lot of hands-on exercises (computers provided), and being very interactive. The format of these seminars is always in conference style seating in order to provide maximum opportunity for interaction between students and instructors. You are responsible for making your own hotel reservation; it would be convenient to stay in the same location where the seminar is being held as listed under our seminar schedule.

In case your schedule or travel restrictions do not allow you to travel attending our face-to-face seminars, you might want to check our self study options as listed below.

2. On-site Training (Available Upon Request)

On-site training class in Riyadh
SIIM can also provide on-site (in-house) training. On-site training is typically more cost effective if several people from your organization are going to attend or if you have an urgent need for training on short notice. In addition, we can customize the on-site training to meet your specific needs and requirements by concentrating on those subjects that are particularly of interest and applicable to your application. We also provide training outside the USA, as a matter of fact we have trained professionals in more than 20 different countries.
